His intuition for innovative developments brought early adopter Robert Heiduk with a small international group of like-minded people directly to Japan to the inventor of Japanese pressure training. On the basis of this encounter and extensive research, the sports scientist created this comprehensive standard work, which is aimed at coaches, athletes, physiotherapists, doctors, scientists and students who would like to gain a deeper insight into the methodology of the original protocols of the KAATSU inventor Yoshiaki Sato. The original core concepts behind KAATSU were not yet available in this form and have been further developed in theory and practice by Robert Heiduk in a new structured approach. The book arouses curiosity about Japanese pressure training and its new possibilities in sport and therapy, but also especially for older people and in corporate health management.
